#BE15for15 – Day 7 – How does posture play together with the diaphragm and pelvic floor?
Hello darling! Today I have a video to share with you to offer you some insights about some of the topics of the past two days, as well as introducing some more information about posture and the orientation of the diaphragm and pelvic floor. Please give it a watch and try any of the suggested bits that you like. I apologize that the audio isn’t very high quality – this was recorded before I got a lavalier mic. The content still gets the point across and is safe for work and the ears of little ones. Happy viewing!
When you feel ready to begin your practice, set your timer – or press play to begin your guided Daily Breathe Easy practice (included with the Breathe Easy audio book). Allow yourself to continue to observe your breath for 15 minutes. Focus on the easy, gentle movement at your pelvic floor during your practice today. Notice any thoughts, sensations, or emotions that reveal themselves to you through this experience. Do not fight them or judge them. Simply notice what shows up and allow it to be. Keep connecting with the movement at your pelvic floor.
Maintain this connection to your breath and when you feel ready, gently blink your eyes open if you have closed them.
Notice how you feel after connecting with your breath. If you are using a journal during this process (which I highly recommend), record how you feel after your second 15 minute experience. What did you notice about the position in which you usually hold your pelvis and ribcage? How does it feel to try to back your weight/pelvis up? When you move toward lining up your diaphragm over your pelvic floor, how does that change your breathing experience? Write down any observations that feel important to you about this awareness based experience with your breath in your journal now. Did this experience feel challenging? Did it feel easy? What did you notice? Was your practice today different than yesterday? If so, in what way(s)? Remember to be kind and to give yourself the gift of grace. Tomorrow we will discuss connecting to the movement at the back of our bodies when we breathe. If you have any thoughts or questions you would like to share, please feel free to do so in the comments section! I’ll do my best to keep up!
